What is Hemp oil and why did we decide to carry it?

      Basically Hemp Oil is a special strain of hemp that has very high % phytocannabinoids but 0%THC, so it cannot get you high in any way whatsoever. Not many people knew about phytocannabinoids until 2013, where CNN did a special on it:    Click here for article

      Until recently hemp was made from special strains of controversial marijuana. Now phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) hemp is made from special strains of legal industrial hemp with 0%THC.  The 2014 Farm Bill relaxed the import/export & interstate commerce of industrial hemp and has been gaining popularity ever since.

       We had heard things about hemp over the last 3 years but because it was all overwhelmingly positive, we thought it was too good to be true.
Then in May of 2016, our company's rescue bulldog Gordo (not to be confused with puppy Gordon) had a bad reaction to his 1st round of chemo to treat an aggressive lymphoma. The co-owner of Innovet Pet Products- David Louvet started looking into alternative treatments and everything he learned pointed toward PCR hemp and/ or THC.

        The Monday night of Gordo's bad chemo reaction (literally less than 2 hours) the other founder of Innovet-Matt Terrill, ordered some PCR Hemp oil however it didn't arrive until Friday and sadly Gordo never recovered from the chemo- he died in Matt's arms that Thursday. (Gordo's last hug)


Gordo lives

        Matt's 16 year old blind Labrador Maximus had also been fighting nasal cancer since 2012, and that same week Maximus stopped walking or eating on his own. Matt was afraid he was about to watch both dogs die within days of each other.  So it was with very little hope that he gave Maximus the Hemp oil.  

      30 mins after he gave Maximus the 1st dose of Hemp Oil we found him exploring our warehouse in an area that he had never before been in. Not only was he walking, he was using his sense of smell to try and find more food because his appetite was back and he had wolfed down the bowl of food that he previously refused. (Max's 16th birthday!)

          The Hemp Oil worked so well that Dave and Matt decided that it was something that we needed to get Innovet involved with. We sourced the highest quality suppliers in Europe with the purest manufacturing techniques and we are bottling it 25% more concentrated and at a much lower price than any other sellers of hemp for pets.

       The FDA limits what we can claim about its medicinal uses. We can only point you toward the countless stories of other people including ourselves that have used hemp for their pets. There are not many USA based clinical studies to cite yet on hemp only because until recently, the feds have made it ridiculously difficult to obtain the drug for research.  However, there have been 1500+ international clinical studies on it.

       Additionally, big pharma has spent tons of money to lobby all levels of government to delay the introduction of hemp to the public.  They realize that hemp oil will inevitably become an effective natural replacement for many of their expensive brand name drugs. They cant justify their high prices if we the people can grow the replacement in our backyards.

      We're confident that once the truth is known it will back up many of the most popular claims with pets such as hemp oil for seizures, inflammation, appetite, arthritis, senility and many cancers. Also, we could find no credible evidence of side effects.

     We're convinced that PCR Hemp Oil gave us an extra month of quality time with Maximus and that it helped his joint pain which got him walking again, slowed his tumor growth and most surprisingly it reduced symptoms of senility and made him alert and curious of his surroundings. Again, these are just our personal views without verified claims.  

     As you can see it's a complex and controversial subject that can easily be misunderstood without explanation. To learn more about CBD oil, please see our product page for PurHemp+ or contact us.

Our dog just had his second seizure last night. The first one was about 4 months ago. The vet said that the cause is likely epilepsy, and has prescribed Zonisamide. I’m leery of pharmaceuticals in general, particularly newer meds, and this is one that he’d have to take twice a day for the rest of his life. Someone suggested we look into CBD oil, and your company was recommended by a few people on other websites. I’m wondering how effective it is, and are there any side effects. We always opt for natural products whenever possible, and if we can use this oil instead of medication, I’d really prefer that.I hate seeing him suffer, but I want to weigh all of our options before making a decision. Thank you.

My dog weighs 60 lbs. which means he’ll need up to 12 drops per day. At that rate how long can I expect one bottle last?

How can I purchase the CBD oil? Also, I am a follower of Marleys Mutts, and their mascot, HOOCH, has had a marked improvement in the condition of his dry cracked nose using nose butter. Can I purchase this on your site?
